Stocking Stuffers~ The hardest part!

I hate filling stockings. I hate it because we either buy junk they don't really need or too much and it won't fit. What's some of your favorite things to stuff in them? This is the last part to our shopping and I'm done!

We always got a giant orange or apple in the bottom... fills alot of space! New pack of crayons... Cars... for the boys. I love stockings.. but we never over-fill them!

Fruit.. We might get a gift or two inside but they were filled with fruit. I'm continuing that one here.

Lol at the giant orange or apple...my mom used to do that too! I would get lip gloss cause i love it so much...still do and my brother got whatever he was into....small acion figure, etc. my mom also used to put nuts in them....walnuts, almonds, etc and we would have so much fun using the nutcracker.

maybe you can put markers, crayons or a small notebook in them if ur kids love to do crafts. what about a small book for each? kids can never have too many books.

Ben a grievus character from star wars.. new dollar tree hairbrush, small packs of fancy bandaids... no candy if I can help it

Ben got fruit and nuts too... I'm glad my parents didn't do that. I did get a pound of sunflower kernels one year. I swear I feel sick if I see them to this day. (In the shell is okay though)

We always get too much and over stuff. Matty is getting some pait and brushes, a toothbrush, some glow in the dark planets for his room, dominoes... and probably a ton of other stuff that I will realize won't fit when I get the bags out and wrap tonight. LOL!
